Right now there seems to be very little difference between mages and archers beside one cost crystal and the other metal. I think it'll add a best more flavor if we can have items that allow generic units to equip and cast simple spells. Not devastating ones like fireball but at least burning hands or healing. I what do you think?

Well, theres one small difference from what i know: mages ignore armor, archers do not. (And weapon upgrading isn't well done for mages)

One thing I"d like to see: traits that improve abilities with magical wands/staves, as part of the magic tree.

These traits would also be generic traits for champions.  Right now I never use wands/staves for my champions, unless I somehow get a Leht Stave.  The init penalty is too great for spellcasters, the melee champs do better with other weapons.

Well, in MoM mages had a single fireball at their disposal, so that request would follow the spirit of MoM. if it's not too hard to implement: why not! Allthough mages are quite powerful as they are atm even without an additional fireball. Maybe they could be transported a bit further up on the tech tree or mad more expensive in terms of ressources and/or laborwork. Just rember how long it took to build a magician guild in MoM...

Yeah if you could level up an army of mages they were ungodly powerful in MOM. It was my favorite stack to send into siege battles of ai cities. If they failed though I had a stack of catapults behind them to finish them off.

I definitely think a "cast cat" spell should be added.  Just imagine facing an opponent, and throwing multiple cats at it.  Its 'raining cats and dogs'might be a higher level of the spell.  JK

Hmm yes, Elemental definitely needs some big cats. Much more fun than dogs and wolves.

Fire and Ice staffs are nice, but I also want to see lightning staffs too!

They exist, but you need to choose Enchanters trait to get it.

I agree. I think better mages should have the choice of coloration, such as tabby, or tortoise shell. And really high mages should be able to select alternate cat forms, such as sabertooth tigers, and Liz Hurley.

"Liz hurley" spell cast?  Is that a cast spell or a hurl spell? (for enchanting spears?)

 

@ ed, all in fun, we all need a little silly-ness from time to time. If you search long enough (please don't) you'll find I've made a few typos of my own.  One was quite entertaining.

Glad to see you're taking it in the right way. There's not a person here who's above making mistakes, and has made quite a few over time.

Yes, take things in good humor, and if you go too far occasionally, apologise, it helps keep the wheels moving smoothly.

Actually, there are a lot of big cats already. Stalkers, and Plague Stalkers... Just have to tame them...

In one game when I got the Kitty quest she was a real killer...

yes kitty is good especially when levelled, and then ther is also the circus bear event that also gives a stalker, and a level 10 stalker/kitty can kill those damn shrills with a single swipe. great fun

There is already one - Magnar.  50% resistance to fire, double damage from cold (negative resistance values count as twice the number in effect).
